WELCOME  TO 

MORE-THAN-HUMAN WORLD

LIBRARY

We live in ​A More-Than-Human World—​ a​ world built from intersecting webs of complex relationships and multiple intelligences. We are not at its center but a part of an inconceivable greater whole. As author and ecologist David Abram says, ​“We are human only in contact, and conviviality, with what is not human.” In an effort to maintain hope, challenge human centricity, and democratize art-making, we are collectively building a digital library that observes the ​More-Than-Human World. ​Over the year 2021, we are inviting 365 individuals to contribute to this ​library. Together we will weave our individual experiences, practices, and wisdom(s) into a polyphonic and evolving web for knowledge sharing.

ABOUT THE PROJECT 

Conversations: Observing a Year percolated out from our experiences of the Covid-19 pandemic and the climate crisis. Through our exploration in the confluence of these spheres, we saw a need for a tool that could bring together different practices, beliefs, ideas, and stories about an interdependent world. 

 

In response, we are creating a participatory, ecologically-focused, socially engaged digital library that collects submissions of individual experiences, practices, and wisdom(s) about A More-Than Human World. Our intention is to organize the collections and form a ‘pluriverse’ of stories that help us make meaning in this More-Than Human World. The project is an effort to collectively build a space that engages in healing practices, democratizes art-making, and is a resource for learning. This is an evolving project.

APRIL 2021: folks shared with us how they participated in a web of interdependence.  

In this first of four quarterly workshops, we celebrated the launch of the archive and engaged participants through storytelling and a collective ritual.  Click below to learn about Jennifer Vaughn, Erin Malleam, and Joshua Carrols Submissions and watch the workshop.
